Pine Ridge Treasures' Summer Romance Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pine Ridge Treasures' Summer Romance Blog Hop - August 18th, 2018


I love purple toned glass beads and sparkly clear crystal  - especially when paired with silver metal!  They have a real "romance factor" about them.  So when I was putting together my Summer Romance Blog Hop kits, I made sure to include  purple Czech glass and crystal!  Some kits had coordinating color themes as well.  For this hop, participants were instructed to make awesome creations using their kit beads, and other items in their bead stash (if they so chose).  

What did I make for the hop? An elegant bracelet and earring set using purple Czech glass hearts, faceted rounds, and drops.  For the bracelet I mixed in clear round crystal beads, large round silver "orbit" spacers and an oval focal bead.  For the earrings I keep it more simple using delicate purple Czech glass drops.  I added sterling silver dangle ear wires to add an elegant look.  I call this set "Night Breeze".  

Now it's time to check out all of the great jewelry creations:
